Tillamook is an Oregon based, farmer-owned cooperative that has been connecting farmers and food lovers through better made dairy products for well over 100 years! This summer Tillamook took it’s love for everything cheese Eastward to expand into new markets on the East Coast! I’m so excited that one of the new cities they landed in was DC! Click here to find out where Tillamook products are available near you!

To celebrate their launch into the DC market they teamed up with Little Red Fox, a restaurant in Northwest DC, to dish up a menu full of cheesy specialties! I had the pleasure of checking out the menu this week and, you GUYS, it’s SO delicious!

The dinner menu includes 4 different kinds of Mac & Cheese (Crab & Artichoke, Bacon, Black Truffle and Pimento with Smoked Tomatillos), Eggplant Parmesan, Cheese Puffs, Queso Dip and Fancy Grilled Cheese! Each dish features one of Tillamook’s amazing cheeses. If you live in the area you would be silly not to check out #MeltyFest at Little Red Fox – the menu runs through July 28th!

Tillamook Breakfast Burrito

These Cheesy Breakfast Burrito Bowls were inspired by Chef Matt Carr’s Tillamook Breakfast Burritos (pictured above). Both recipes are meat free and packed with eggs, potatoes and, of course, tons of creamy Tillamook cheese! Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese to be exact, which is made with a tried and true recipe they have been using since 1909! The cheese is allowed ample time to mature, so the flavors develop naturally for that perfect extra sharp cheddar taste!

Tillamook Cheesy Breakfast Burrito Bowls

To make these Cheesy Breakfast Burrito Bowls start off by pan frying shredded potatoes to use as the base. Top that with a generous helping of chili spiced scrambled eggs. Add as much black bean salsa as you like and then finish it off with the creamy Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese sauce! These bowls will make your cheesy breakfast dreams come true!
